Hurlingham Academy Win Again
Five students from Hurlingham Academy placed in the top three for the boys and top two for girls in the most recent 1 minute erg challenge we set for all of our 18 participating schools. Third place came from an equally successful programme lead by Anna Tyndall from Hammersmith Academy.
We had just under 100 entries into the latest challenge so this is a huge accomplishment from the school to have so many of their students doing so well.
Ross Cheetham and Tom Pudney from Hurlingham Academy lead a successful rowing club at the school where each week the students are set different challenges and alongside technical coaching they are taught to push each other and also work off of one another to achieve higher goals each time.
The next challenge will see the the very best rowers across all of our participating schools take on rowers from our new partner, Row New York.
Ultimately, we will be looking to continue this relationship and have on water races done with our students through an exchange program, more on this soon!
A huge well done again to Hurlingham Academy and it’s rowing club leaders!
